Trika - 02 - Parasamvit

parAsaMvit is the transcendental aspect of Nature or Pure Consciousness, also known as Paramshiva.

Since something cannot come out of nothing, the Ultimate Reality must contain all things in their fullness. Therefore it must be:
a. chit or Universal Consciousness to account for feeling
b. Ananda or Universal Bliss to account for joy
c. ichChA or Universal Desire to account for desire
d. GYAna or Universal Intelligence to account for knowledge
e. kriyA or Universal Action to account for action

The eternal substance in which all things inhere is called Chaitanya or Universal Spirit. It is eternal and unmanifest and can be recognized only by spiritual illumination.
